    History of Barkhamsted Center Program

    Join us at the Barkhamsted Senior Center this Friday, May 8th at 7:00 pm for the, "History of Barkhamsted Center". The educational program is being presented by local historian, life long Barkhamsted resident and BHS volunteer, Paul Hart.

    Mr. Hart will describe the history of what was, not only, the geographic center of Barkhamsted, but also the municipal and community center of town. Combined with a slide show, Mr. Hart will describe many of the historic buildings and places that collectively made up the Barkhamsted Center. Some of these include the Town Hall,  Merrill Tavern, Center School, Center Church, The Cash Store and Hotel, The Constitution Oak, Animal Pound, Cemetery and the Militia Parade Ground. Mr. Hart will also describe some of the many historic events that took place in Barkhamsted Center.

    Please join us at the Barkhamsted Senior Center located on West River Road in Barkhamsted, 7:00 pm for what will be an enjoyable and educational evening. Refreshments will be served.
